FIRST DOCTOR IN THE UK TO DIE FROM COVID-19

The royal couple's call to Queen's Hospital Burton on Wednesday came as a way to reach out and share their condolences. Last week, 55-year-old Amged El-Hawrani became the first doctor in the UK to die from the coronavirus.

Following their call of support to Queen's Hospital Burton, the royal couple also talked to the staff at University Hospital Monklands, in Lanarkshire.

ANOTHER CALL OF SUPPORT

Empathizing with the staff having to stretch themselves "in all sorts of ways" to look after their patients, Kate also reminded them that they have to look after each other and themselves as well, and reportedly added:

"It must be so hard but I’m glad to hear that you’re currently getting all the support you need.”

Prince William and Kate were the first members of the royal family to visit people working on the front lines at a London 111 center, but they went into self-isolation shortly afterward.

THE ROYALS IN SELF-ISOLATION

Currently, at their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, with their three children, the royal couple reportedly handle all their correspondence from there as well.

Even though Queen Elizabeth normally resides at Buckingham Palace, and Prince Philip at Sandringham, the royal couple went to Windsor Castle for the foreseeable future.

Prince Charles is the first member of the British royal family to test positive for the disease, and he had gone into self-isolation with Camilla at Birkhall.

Prince Harry and Meghan are also vigilant after moving to Los Angeles, where they are reportedly renting a mansion for the time being.

PEOPLE COMING TOGETHER

Since the coronavirus reached the pandemic stage, some industries have reacted with innovative ways to get ahead of the curb of the virus with extra medical support where needed.

The NHS needed medical personnel to help in their new Nightingale infirmaries and turned to airlines EasyJet and Virgin Atlantic for help.

With thousands of airline crew members trained for medical emergencies and unable to work due to halted air travel, close to 9,000 staff based in the UK received recall letters to lend a helping hand.
